No improvement in the working of the Government even after the fine of 50 crores

The Punjab Government officials have not learnt any lesson even after the Punjab government being fined 50 crores by the National Green Tribunal for polluting the Punjab rivers. Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal renominated member of the Punjab Pollution Control board has caught the loop holes of Basti Peerdad 50 MLD treatment plant. Before joining as a member of Supervising committee formed under National Green Tribunal Environment lover Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal had made a sudden checking on the Peerdad treatment plant then a plastic pipe was found concealed in the grass by the operators of the treatment plant. Through which untreated water was sometimes thrown straight into the drain. Sant Seechewal told that this pipe was found near that place of the treatment plant from where the water after treatment goes out.

  Sant Seechewal said that this way the Punjab Government and the people are being cheated as the management of the treatment plant even after consuming electricity are mixing the untreated water in the treated water. He told that the 2nd outlet is directly opened to the drain. Sant Seechewal put this issue before the senior officer J. Chanderbabu of the Central Pollution Control Board during the today's meeting and in the presence of the officials of Punjab Pollution Control Board and Jalandhar Corporation. In the meeting the officials of Jalandhar Corporation had to admit that untreated water through pipes is being thrown into the drain. Sant Seechewal had a doubt when he found that the quantity of sludge removed from the plant was quite less and thought that the water of the plant through bypass was secretly thrown into drain.
 Sant Baldev Krishan Singh who has been keeping a watch on the working of this plant for a long time was on a look to catch the theft of the operators of the treatment plant and was waiting to bring into the notice of Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal. Superintendent Engineer Harbeer Singh of Punjab Pollution Control Board in the meeting said thatj suitable action will be taken against the careless persons.

Seechewal Model A Way of Prosperity….

What exactly is Seechewal Model ?

The Punjab like other states of India and the whole world today is facing a great environmental crisis. Ground water level of Punjab is depleting rapidly. All the natural water resources are polluted due to the dumping of untreated and poisonous industrial and domestic wastage into them. As a result of this, people at large are suffering from deadly diseases. Sant Balbir Singh Singh Seechewal has devised "Seechewal model", a simple pipe and pump formula, as an effective solution to this serious problem. It has been implemented at many places including village Seechewal and Sultanpur Lodhi. In fact it has been termed as 'Seechewal Model' by the Government of India. It has been adopted as a model for cleaning the Ganga apart from other rivers of India. Before this, the Government of India dwelled on the other countries for assistance- financial as well as technical. After all such efforts had failed, the need for searching alternatives…

During these 50 years, what the Pun…

Avtar Gaushala An effort to shelter homeless and speechless animals

Mostly the stray animals become the cause of accidents on the roads. Many valuable lives have been lost due to accidents happening due to stray animals. After all it is a big question that why these milk yielding cows come in the class of stray animals. Until a cow yields milk it is kept in the house and is well served. When it stops yielding milk it is stealthily left on the road to wander. The stray cows have become a big problem but no proper alternative for it is found. To give relief to the historical city Sultanpur lodhi from the stray cows, Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal has made an effort to take care of the stray cows. Started with one stray cow in 2010 Avtar Gau Shala has now more than 150 cows, those left out by the people. Now these cows are milk yielding.The sangats are whole heartedly serving these animals with feed, straw and parali. To save these animals from cold, the sheds with modern facilities have been made. Hardeep Singh, Baba Golu, Kaka and many more sewadars are e…
